Please Login to Remove!

I enter google.com on my 7130e and it goes to Google Canada. I live in Texas. Any ideas why?

As posted by BuZ in an earlier post (hint b4 you ask do a search the answers are already here):

The solution is to visit www.google.com/ncr. (where ncr stands for No Country Redirect), this will disable the automatic IP detection and send you to google.com.

If I lived in California or Texas I would stay there for the present. The weather in Canada is very poor. Furthermore, there is a federal election going on and the place is crawling with politicians! If you are planning a trip wait at least until May or pack your longjohns.

Rim servers are in Canada and Google detects this.
